Experiments on the behavior of americium in pyrochemical process

Hayashi, Hirokazu ; Akabori, Mitsuo; Minato, Kazuo 

For a basis of the future nuclear cycle, it is very important to understand and control the behavior of TRU (Np, Pu, Am, Cm) in the nuclear fuel cycle. Experimental study of pyrochemical process of fuels containing TRU requires the facility having not only shielding for $$gamma$$-ray and neutron but also ability to keep a high purity inert gas atmosphere; because minor actinide chlorides can easily react with oxygen or water vapor in an atmosphere. The module for TRU high temperature chemistry (TRU-HITEC) had been installed to study the basic properties of TRU in the pyrochemical processes. In the present work, the behavior of $$^{241}$$Am in pyrochemical process was investigated by electrochemical methods.
